it’s small, so you get to know everyone. which is a pro and a con. UH greek life is full of a bunch of people who peaked in high school and didn’t think they’d get into greek life in an SEC school. TONS of bullies and drama, but it’s so small that EVERYONE knows about it. bayou all knows each other’s dirty laundry, and you can’t trust anyone. there are some cute guys and some pretty girls, but mostly everyone is so mid it’s painful. tailgates are fun tho
Uh is a commuter school the Greek life really doesn’t compare with bigger schools in Texas which may be a upside for some and a downside for others
Greek life at UH may be small, but it’s a great way to connect with others. Less people = smaller pledge classes = you knowing your pledge sisters and brothers more. Everyone is very involved on campus even outside of Greek life. People may talk crap because our school doesn’t have “traditional” southern Greek life, but the culture is not as toxic and gives you the ability to make real friends within the community - unlike universities where your pledge class is 100 people. There are definitely issues like in any community to be fixed, but with everything going on, the community has been doing a lot of internal work to correct issues by advisors and members. Hopefully if things stay on track, there will be even more chapters in the future and Greek life will continue to grow.
UH greek life is decent; not many choices for sororities and the whole greek community is just very half and half. Lots of cool, friendly people, but also a lot of stuck up, rude, arrogant ones. If you find a solid chapter to join you'll be ok and just stick to your gut and morals haha.
Greek life would be a ton better if the school wasn’t completely against it
i like having a small greek community
I love my school. Greek life has given me my best friends and a relationship Iâ€™d only dreamed of. Iâ€™ve grown academically and made so many connections. I even landed my dream internship. Iâ€™m a coog at heart always and forever!
So anyone comparing us to traditional greek schools arenâ€™t understanding that we have our own individual Greek life. We arenâ€™t trying to be like that. We get really involved in our community and have made great friendships in Greek park. Itâ€™s way more intimate because you actually matter since youâ€™re not ignored in a swarm of thousands. Iâ€™ve had some of my best memories here! My best friend went to UT and rushed Tri Delt (top house) and ended up dropping 2 years later because it was so fake and snobby that no one cared about each other. The grass isnâ€™t always greener on the other side. Weâ€™re our own thing and it works well for us!
